Ridiculous rhymes

Ridiculous rhymes
From the familiar “runcible spoon” and “hills of the Chankly Bore” to previously unpublished letters, this is an irresistible collection of Edward Lear’s poetry, prose and illustrations. Three alphabets introduce even the very youngest listeners or readers to the teasing word-play that makes old favourites such as “The Jumblies”, “The Owl and the Pussy Cat” and “The Dong with a Luminous Nose” so memorable. Limericks, nonsense botany, nonsense cookery, and serious poems – a sheer delight. This anthology should be in every home.
